Urban Planet news - George Adams
  • Don't make a promotion of a section to itself.  Don't have an RSS feed subscribe to its own section.  This causes a loop and problems.
  • Google search. Please do a search of your site using the built in search box.  They should look at the results to make sure they are for their web site only. They should also include references to PDF files.  If not have them contact me to insure their web site has been set up to be searched by http://google.spps.org
  • Deleting sections has been turned off for all users for all sites. Create an Archive section where unused sections can be moved to keep the site neat.  Sections can be turned off or hidden.  We may have a delete your old sections day where we will allow the deletion of sections
  • They can still delete items, snap polls, sidebars, images, movies, audio files, related links and documents.
  • If you want to be on the Urban Planet mailing list and are not a building tech, email George Adams.
